Outlandish Animal Illustrations by Naoto Hattori
Japanese artist Naoto Hattori explores the world of dreams to produce portraits of animals that are often extremely surreal and bizarre.
“My vision is like a dream, whether it’s a sweet dream, a nightmare, or just a trippy dream. I try to see what’s really going on in my mind, and that’s a practice to increase my awareness in stream-of-consciousness creativity. I try not to label or think about what is supposed to be, just take it in as it is and paint whatever I see in my mind with no compromise. That way, I create my own vision.’
